In and around Hamburg


Many universities and institutes of higher education in Hamburg issue a hvv ticket to full-time students. This gives you the right to travel as often as you like in a defined area of validity during the semester given on the ticket.

Summer Semester 2024

Green light for the hvv Deutschlandsemesterticket!

Participating universities and institutes of higher education will introduce the hvv Deutschlandsemesterticket as of the Summer Semester 2024. That means that students are automatically eligible for the ticket as soon as they have paid their fees for the semester.

The SemesterTicket gives you the right to as many journeys as you like in fare rings A-E during the semester printed on the ticket. The area of validity can be expanded by purchasing the appropriate season ticket at one of our service centres. You can take along up to 3 children aged 6 to 14 on a SemesterTicket. Further extra benefits are not included in this ticket. Children under the age of 6 always travel free of charge on hvv services.

Students at the Leuphana Universität Lüneburg will receive a separate SemesterTicket.

Most of the public institutes of higher education in Schleswig-Holstein issue a SemesterTicket valid in the entire federal state to their students.

Our tip: for full-time students whose university or institute of higher education does not offer a ticket for their students or for students from outside the federal state, the hvv Deutschlandticket is an alternative.

And this is how you get the hvv Deutschlandsemesterticket on your smartphone:

If you would like to use the hvv Deutschlandsemesterticket from now on, follow the instructions below:  

  • The QR code from your university or institute of higher education will take you to RIDE – the Campus Portal for your hvv Deutschlandsemesterticket. Look out for this on the usual info sources, e.g. notice boards, emails or the website of your university or institute of higher education.
  • You will get to your ticket via the button “to Login“ in one of the following ways:
    • either you will be rerouted to the website of your university or institute of higher education. Log in there with the login data of your university or institute of higher education
    • or your eligibility for the ticket will be checked when you enter your matriculation number and your date of birth.
  • When the check has been successfully completed, you will get your hvv  Deutschlandsemesterticket directly in the RIDE Campus Portal.
  • You can go to the control view by clicking on the ticket. There, you can also pull the ticket into your smartphone wallet. You should have the “automatic update“ function activated there so that your ticket will be up to date if there is a ticket inspection.  

Your next semester

If you will be continuing your studies in the next semester, just repeat this process at the beginning of the next semester. Your university or institute of higher education will make the same QR code or link available to you for each new semester.
